Dear friend,

The unfortunate reality we are all currently living with, with so many schools and offices closed, has left many of us feeling socially isolated.  Although we are encouraged to practice social distancing, we can still continue to study together and connect as a community!

We are offering classes on an online platform called Zoom.  Zoom is a simple, free, way to connect with people online.  You sign into a meeting, and can view and interact with the host and participants of the meeting. 

 

Class Schedule:

Wednesday, March 18, 8 pm – Rabbi Heber on the topic of Faith During Challenging Times.

 

Thursday, March 19, 8 pm (notice the time change) – Women’s Torah and Tea with Hadassah (You’ll have to make your own tea. We’d love to make it for you but haven’t found an app for that yet J ).

Topic: Deeper Meaning of some Passover rituals and prayers.

 

Wednesday March 25, 8 pm – Rabbi Heber with DIY Seder tips, Passover shopping list, and more practical information.  Unfortunately, it seems many of us will be celebrating Passover at home and not joining larger groups as in previous years.  Here’s all you need to know to make it happen in a calm and joyous manner!

 

Wednesday, April 1, 8 pm – Rabbi Heber with Insights into the Hagaddah and anecdotes to share at your own seder.  A printout will be emailed to participants.

 

Here are step by step instructions on how to join a meeting via Zoom.  Its simpler than it sounds!

We would recommend trying out the Zoom platform before the class to get comfortable with the system. It takes just a few minutes.
